We were driving from Tenessee to Atlanta and were growing weary from the drive, so we began seeking a place to rest around 10 PM. The Rodeway Inn has an awesome location and looks like a remote beacon on the hill along the freeway. We u-turned at the next exit to return back to it because it looked so stately. We drove up the steep, winding road to the hotel but there were NO cars in the lot... hmmm. But we buzzed the night clerk, who answered the door in short shorts and white t-shirt and we pay for a room. As we go to park at the room, another car whips around us and drops a guy off and leaves. Its the only other car we've seen at the hotel. The thin young man knocks and is let in. We're watching as we're still debating the wisdom of staying here. At this time we check reviews on the place, which are confirming what we're seeing, but still go into the room hoping for a pleasant surprise. The creep factor was too high, so we get a refund and continue to exit 98 and find the Best Western a much better choice. We've affectionately named it the "Hotel Carolina"
